Notes about this historic site

1 ‘Tumulus’ marked.
2 Case was told that the barrow could still be traced but had not visited the site.
4 Beesley records that a small circle of stones was ploughed up here some years ago. The site is at present under grass and level. The field name is ‘Gallow Hill’, and so the possibility that the feature was merely a gallows mound must be reckoned with.
5 Barrow or ?gallows mound. Now destroyed.
